Rumors previously hinted at the announcement of the long awaited Galaxy Tab 3 lineup, well it happens that Samsung went ahead and revealed their two newest addition to the series. – The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and Galaxy Tab 10.1

The 7.4mm thick Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is more like a phablet than just a simple tablet as Samsung clearly states it; ‘designed to be held in one hand’. It packs a 20.3cm WXGA TFT display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels clocking at 189ppi while stacking a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (the actual SoC manufacturer has not revealed) coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.

You’ll also find 5MP rear camera along with a 1.3MP front-facing snapper, and either 16 or 32GB of on-board storage expandable via MicroSD while a 4450 mAh battery backs it all up. It will be released in WiFi-only (dual-band, a/b/g/n), 3G (HSPA+) and LTE variants. The OS of choice is obviously Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the usual TouchWiz UX & Samsung ‘S-Apps’

On the other side we’ve got the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch (25.4cm) with a thickness of under 8 millimeters featuring the same display resolution but with only 149ppi and carries a 3MP rear camera and the same 1.3MP front-facer and a 1.6GHz dual-core processor along with only 1GB of RAM. Also running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the 10.1-inch Tab 3 packs a 6,800mAh battery, and comes in WiFi-only, 3G and LTE variants.
